I will not call you Dad because that is more than you deserve. A dad is someone who was there for you when you were trying to figure out life in high school. A dad is someone who goes to your basketball games even though he doesn’t like sports. A dad is there to help you take those scary steps after you graduate high school. A dad is someone whom you can count on for solid advice in the event of a mental breakdown. Unfortunately, for whatever “reason” you decide to give me, you were never there for any of those.
